Gill’s ascent in the Indian team began with a double century for India A against West Indies A in 2019, making him the youngest Indian batsman to achieve this feat in a first-class match. He later secured a place in the Indian team, outperforming competitors like Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, and Prithvi Shaw to become the preferred opener across all formats by early 2023. Noteworthy performances, such as a double century against New Zealand in ODIs, further solidified his position while establishing him as the youngest player to achieve this milestone in the format.

His rise to the Indian team can be attributed to his performance in the IPL, where he debuted in 2018 and was signed by Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs 1.8 crore. Despite facing challenges during his time with KKR, he was later acquired by Gujarat Titans for Rs 8 crore. In the following season, he emerged as the IPL champion and secured the second-highest runs for his team. Speculation about his relationship with Sara Tendulkar surfaced but subsided when he was seen publicly with Sara Ali Khan. Since then, the cricketer’s personal life has been a subject of interest, with rumors linking him to both women while he remains silent on the matter.
